CHICAGO,
IL (AP).-
Colorful mobiles made from boldly
painted sheet metal and steel wires will dangle above visitors’ heads
this
summer as the Museum of Contemporary Art displays an exhibit of 60 works
by
Alexander Calder. But this Calder show, which debuts Saturday, doesn’t
only
feature the artist’s abstract pieces in the museum’s large, white
main-floor
gallery. In an equally large gallery across the way, dozens of works by
young
artists who have a Calderesque style are on view. Exhibition dates 26
June
through 17 October, 2010.
